GALTX

Booker, aka Booker, is a big light brindle 3 year-old male born on May 17, 2013, and he is a sibling to Ridge. His sire is RA Blazer and his dam is Boc's Fancynfree. Booker has 57 races on record at Southland Greyhound Park in West Memphis, AR. On March 23, 2016, Booker had at surgery at a clinic in Abilene, Kansas for an injury to his right rear leg. Booker came to GALT's family on May 24 and has been evaluated by our orthopedic veterinarian, Dr. Radasch at the Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center. Booker has four more weeks of weekly bandage changes before follow up x-rays will be taken to determine his healing progress.

Booker would do best with a canine companion.

Booker has passed an initial cat test and has lived in a foster home with a cat.

UPDATE 7/9/16

Booker's cast has been removed as x-rays reveal his fracture has healed. He is being leash walked in his foster home and will be scheduled to complete his medical procedures soon.

UPDATE 7/20/16

Booker has completed all his medical procedures; however there is some swelling in his repaired leg that is being evaluated by Dr. Radasch. He continues to be leash walked.
